‘American Idol’ Winner Lee DeWyze Is Engaged to Jonna Walsh

lee dewyze and jonna walshSome people have all the luck.  Lee DeWyze, the 2010 American Idol winner, has confirmed that he just became engaged to model/actress Jonna Walsh.  The singer shared that he popped the question July 16 over champagne on a private yacht at Disney World in Orlando while fireworks went off in the background.  As to why the Idol winner chose Disney World for the proposal location DeWyze states, “Jonna is a Disney freak.”  The singer describes how it all went down explaining, “They were playing love songs on the boat and I got down on my knee and asked her. I had a speech prepared but it all went out the window so I just asked her. She started crying and I said, ‘Is that a yes?'”  Indeed it was — I mean who could say no to that?!

How did these two love birds cross paths?  DeWyze met Walsh last October while shooting a video for his single Sweet Serendipity.  DeWyze recalls, “We were casting and I saw her and said, ‘Let’s go with her.’ I thought she was cute….we hung out and we went to a Lakers game on our first date. She’s a Lakers fan and I’m a Chicago Bulls fan and we just clicked out of the gate.”  Evidently so — the couple have only been dating for eight months, but according to the superstar love knows no time restraints, “When you know, you know…we both feel that way. We don’t need to be together 20 years before we figure it out.”  The couple are planning to wed in the fall of 2012.
